    James Clapper, former director of National Intelligence for former President Obama, claims in his new book Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell refused to sign a statement condemning foreign interference in elections. In his book, “Facts and Fears, Hard Truths from a Life in Intelligence,” Clapper claims the two Republican leaders did not want to sign anything that would hurt their party’s nominee. Clapper was “disappointed, but not surprised,” he also wrote. Ryan and McConell have not responded to the claims. During his appearance on “The View,” Clapper insisted the FBI was not spying on President Donald...

    Harvard law professor Laurence Tribe cautioned Democrats who are looking to impeach President Trump if the party takes back the House of Representatives, telling CNN on Tuesday, "If you’re going to shoot him, you have to shoot to kill" with "overwhelming" bipartisan support on an impeachment vote. Tribe, a staunch critic of the president going back to his candidacy, appeared on CNN's "New Day" to discuss his new book, "To End a Presidency: The Power of Impeachment." Etc...
  • BREAKING: E-mails Show FBI Brass Discussed Dossier Briefing Details With CNN

    05/21/2018 8:49:01 PM PDT · by Bigtigermike · 55 replies
    Newly revealed e-mails show that former Federal Bureau Investigation (FBI) deputy director Andrew McCabe was keenly aware of CNN’s internal understanding of a secret briefing about the infamous Steele dossier, days before CNN published any stories on the matter. The e-mails, which were obtained by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.), also reveal that top officials used coded language to refer to the salacious and unverified allegations made by Steele. Former FBI director James Comey briefed then-President-Elect Donald Trump on January 6, 2017, on at least one unproven allegation contained in Steele’s dossier, which was jointly funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign...

    I dare any pro Chavez, pro Maduro, or CNN, or BBC or anything to show me a similar turnout recently for a Maduro support rally where NO buses to ferry people were used, where NO booze was given out, where NO breakfast or lunch or cookies were offered, where NO military were asked to attend. Then we can talk again about who has the most enthusiastic support in the country.

    James Clapper, former director of National Intelligence, said it was a "good thing" if former President Barack Obama's administration spied on President Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, Real Clear Politics reported Friday. "They [the Obama admin's FBI] may have had someone who was talking to them in the campaign, but, you know, the focus here... is not on the campaign, per se, but what the Russians were doing to try to instantiate themselves in the campaign or influence or leverage it," Clapper told CNN. But if an intelligence agent was "observing" Trump campaign officials' interactions with Russia, "that's a good...

  • Democrats may be approaching a turning point on Israel

    05/20/2018 11:32:48 AM PDT · by ameribbean expat · 19 replies
    This year, 27% of Democrats said their sympathies lied with the Israel over the Palestinians in their conflict, while 25% said the Palestinians. The rest said both or neither. Just two years ago (when the Democrats adopted more pro-Palestinian positions in their plank), 43% of Democrats said their sympathies aligned with Israel compared with 29% who said the Palestinians. It's not just that Democrats are split, it's how they're split. Establishment Democrats have been fighting off an insurgent progressive wing, and it's not any different on this issue. Liberal Democrats who pushed for the more pro-Palestinian language are far more...

    Greensboro News & Record ^ | 5/20/2018 | Albert Hunt
    A CNN poll last week showed that most Americans think Barack Obama was a better president than Donald Trump has been. The margin was huge: 19 percentage points. Trump supporters will yell “fake news,” but they’ll be wrong. Respondents to the same survey thought Hillary Clinton would have been a better president than Trump, but only by three percentage points. By comparison, she bested Trump in the 2016 popular vote by 2.1 percentage points. The wide preference for Obama over Trump (and Clinton) has little relationship to public attitudes toward policies on taxes, health care or Iran policy. (Obama and...

    On Wednesday, Donald Trump embraced the "resistance". The president held a White House meeting of state and local leaders from California who are rebelling against the Golden State’s sanctuary policies, which limit cooperation between local law enforcement and federal immigration authorities. The Trump administration’s Department of Justice is suing California over these policies, and the guests in attendance represented cities and counties that are “resisting” state law by passing ordinances against sanctuary policies or supporting the federal government in the lawsuit. SNIP The 14 anti-sanctuary guests that Trump had in attendance at his meeting, like the mayor of Los Alamitos,...

    Maybe it’s a matter of timing. Maybe I’m not giving this a fair shake. But whenever I happen to tune in to CNN, there’s a panel of talking heads discussing President Trump and the porn star. Or President Trump and the Mueller investigation. Or President Trump and whether he’ll be impeached. Or President Trump and Jerusalem. Or President Trump and Saudi Arabia. Or President Trump and Iran. Or President Trump and North Korea. Or President Trump and the American economy. Or President Trump and pro-life legislation. Or President Trump and national security – or whatever the major topic is –...
  • CNN Re-Ups False 22 School Shootings Stat

    It didn’t take CNN long to start spreading fake news after Friday’s school shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas. CNN Chief National Security Correspondent Jim Sciutto and political correspondent Sara Murray both tweeted that today’s deadly shooting brings the total number of U.S. school shootings this year to 22. The list of school shootings used by CNN and other news outlets, however, wildly exaggerates the number by lumping in accidental firearm discharges, domestic disputes, and events that don’t involve students with the active shooter situations that most people don’t lump into the specific category of school shootings. (RELATED:...

    First lady Melania Trump has been in the hospital for four days, with no word on exactly when she will be released. Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, would not give any details about why the first lady was there, but a White House statement said she underwent an embolization procedure on Monday morning to treat a benign kidney condition. President Trump tweeted Monday that she "is doing really well" and would be leaving the hospital in "2 or 3 days" after her procedure. Embolization "cuts off the blood supply to a certain part of the body,"...

    Clapper admitted the FBI “may have had someone who was talking to them in the campaign,” referring to President Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. He explained away the possibility of an FBI informant spying on the campaign as the bureau was trying to find out “what the Russians were doing to try to substantiate themselves in the campaign or influence or leverage it.” Obama’s Director of National Intelligence then went on to say, “So, if there was someone that was observing that sort of thing, that’s a good thing.” He also stated he believes “it’s hugely dangerous if someone like that...

    This week the national media performed a real service for the first time in recent memory. They are so comfortable distorting President Trump’s words to horrify the masses that they got careless and exposed themselves on a whole new level. California law enforcement and elected officials met with President Trump at the White House on Wednesday to discuss the impact of the “sanctuary state” policies there. A heavy theme throughout the meeting was the crime committed by illegal immigrants as evidenced by Kate Steinle’s murder in 2015. Her killer had already been deported five times when he fatally shot Steinle,...

    CNN's Jake Tapper reacts to a poll that shows a "shockingly high" percentage of Americans believe then-President Obama ordered surveillance on then-candidate Donald Trump's presidential campaign. The ABC/Washington Post poll shows 32% of those polled think Obama intentionally spied on Trump while 58% disagree. "This is the time for you, the public, to demand evidence from your leaders and from your media, even if you already agree with the politics of the person on your TV," Tapper said Wednesday night.

    CNN will host a live town hall with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on May 23 with anchor Chris Cuomo, the cable network announced Wednesday. "With control of the House, and possibly the Senate, on the line, the California Democrat is expected to face an array of domestic and foreign policy questions as Congress continues to struggle with how to find common ground on issues ranging the 700,000 undocumented immigrants protected under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program to taxes," reads the network announcement.
